Z is for Moose

Helping kids learn the letters of the alphabet can get kind of dull after awhile! A is for Apple. B is for Ball. Meh. The only interesting part is looking to see what the author came up with for "Q" and "X".

This alphabet boredom is true for kids too! To keep their attention (and yours!) give them a fun twist on the usual alphabet book. Read one with an alphabet surprise in it.

In Z is for Moose Moose gets impatient and bossy when he can't wait his turn for the letter "M" page. Watch Moose shove other animals out of the way, cross words out and generally make a nuisance of himself...so much so that MOUSE is chosen for M, which doesn't improve Moose's behavior AT ALL. Moose is in tears until his clever friend Zebra shows him that even Z isn't too late for a Moose.

If you like Z is for Moose and the idea of an alphabet book that makes talking about the letters fun, try one of these. It's one thing to name a letter and say a word that begins with that letter. It's a step more challenging to point out an alphabet mistake. What kid doesn't like pointing out the mistakes other people make!
